what was I thinking!

My work in progress....eeeek I hadn't realised how hard it was to make food look tasty!
I have 'practised' the recipe again, just to see if it tastes as good as I hope, and yum, it is..... I hope everyone else is enjoying themselves :-)

my sign in page, work in progress. I was going for a restaurant menu type of thing. Still deciding on what to draw, and would probably type the recipes on a separate piece of 3.5 x 5.5 paper, place it in the moleskine back pocket, and stick it at the back page later.

Hi there....

Well, we now have a group of 'foodies' :-) If there are any more people you think might like to join us please invite them.
As it stands at the moment we will work in a japanese fold using one side for the food illustration and the reverse side for the recipe.
I know that it is a very busy time of year for a lot of people and we have to get our molys ordered etc, so how does the new year sound for our first posting? I won't mind if you can get your books out earlier tho....... I will look at the order of posting closer to the time.
I am looking forward to a tasty exchange..... :-)

Welcome to moly_x_57!

Moly_x_57, founded by Lynne Lamb (Uk), is an extension of the Moleskine Exchange. This blog will follow the adventure of a group of artists around the world, in a Japanese fold Moleskine sketchbook exchange. Our current group includes the artists listed to the right, including contributors in many different countries all over the world.

Each artist will set off with a small Japanese (accordian) folded Moleskine. Creating a drawing, collage, or painting, then send on to the next artist. Each artist will draw on a couple of spreads (3-4 pages) then send it on to the next artist. When the artists book is filled, it will be returned to the owner with images created by artist around the world. Each artist has a month (give or take) to make an entry. The outcome will be a pleasant and surprising adventure, as artists are encouraged to interact and merge their art with others.

The concept:

1. The artists start with the Japanese fold Moleskine - Name, address, email address written in book.

2. Each artist gets 1 month (give or take) to make a sketchbook entry, and mail it to the next person. The order is listed to the right -- for participants in this exchange, look at the list of names under MAILING ORDER. If you ever need to update addresses, please feel free to contact your partners directly! An important part of this project is to discuss and exchange information and ideas.

3. Each artist will do 3-4 pages each round.

4. Artists are encouraged to interact with other images in the book. Please be respectful, but also don't hesitate to meld your art with earlier entries.

5. When the book is full, when one side of the unfolded book is filled, the book will be sent back to its original owner. That artist may continue by buying a new book and sending it to the next person.

6. If a person decides not to continue, she will simply keep her book when it comes back to her. She should email all of the participants to say she is not going to continue. We will decide, then, if we want to find a new person.

7. Please communicate regularly via email. Let each person know that you have received/sent the book. The goal is to have a dialogue. Any comments and questions are welcome.
